Access to building

The fences around the old hospital are making it difficult to get to our entrance. The only access to the front door is by walking south on the sidewalk between our building and the dental school from Burt Street. Monday through Friday before about 6 pm; you can access the building from the doors on the south side of the garage under our building. If you park in the visitor's lot west of the dental school you should walk east along Burt Street. Please call us at 402 280 5109 if you have questions as there will be changes as the demolition around the hospital progresses.

Scopus trial access ended 30 April; survey available until 8 May

Trial access to the Scopus database ended 30 April 2017. The Scopus vs Web of Science Comparative Trial 2017 Assessment Survey will be available until 8 May 2017.

The libraries have subscribed to Web of Science for many years, but are considering whether to replace it with Scopus when our subscription ends on 30 June. Faculty evaluation of both products is vital to this decision. Please fill out the survey.

Both are bibliographic databases offering primary indexing, citation indexing and tracking, the ability to profile the work of individual authors, and measures of the academic impact of journals, articles, authors, and institutions.

More detail about Scopus and Web of Science is available here.
